Hi I'm Jill

I'm a mother and a grandmother. I have retired from my job, but I'll never retire from Church activity. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a grandmother to eight boys and four girls. I learn so much from them and daily realize what a blessing little children are to us as adults. What a responsibility we have to them and to their future world!

Why I am a Mormon

As a child, I wondered about the story I had heard concerning the visions of the Prophet Joseph Smith. If he could see God, Jesus and angels, why couldn't I? I wondered if he was telling the truth about his experiences. One night I prayed and asked God if Joseph Smith really saw the things he said he saw. My soul was immediately filled with a sweet spirit so strong that I thought I might see an angel, too! I told God that I didn't need to see an angel, but I knew Joseph Smith did. In the decades since that night, I have never seen an angel, but I have frequently felt that sweet spirit of the Holy Ghost guiding my life.

How I live my faith

I teach songs to the children in my congregation. We have a lot of fun together every Sunday. I hope they will receive the same confirmation of the Spirit I received as a child.
